Montclair Webinar on Municipal Finances with Councilor Peter Yacobellis
Time & Location
About the event
Everyone knows that property taxes are high in Montclair. But not everyone knows how we spend your money.
Join me for a Town Hall where we'll review your property tax bill and take a high level look at how we spend your tax dollars in town. Soon approaching only the second time that I've had a chance to vote on our budget and knowing there is a lot of history here, I'm excited to introduce you to a talented group of Montclairions, who have helped me create a dynamic and easy to follow presentation for all of you. Joining us also is Brigid D'Souza, a licensed CPA and assistant professor at Saint Peter's University who also has a blog at civicparent.org where she writes and teaches about local, public finance and how taxpayers can navigate local public budgets. Our hope is that many more of you become informed and engaged and can help influence how we prioritize what we fund in the years ahead. We also anticipate this will be the first of several sessions.
